Which mental disorders qualify for Social Security Disability?

Often times, one of the most difficult parts of applying for Social Security disability is knowing whether or not your condition will qualify. If you suffer from a mental impairment in Rhode Island, you may not realize that you can be eligible for coverage. Here is what the Social Security Administration has to say about which mental disorders qualify for assistance.

The hidden costs of long-term disability

When you are facing providing the long-term disability care for a loved one in Rhode Island, one of the most common things you may think about is what the cost will be. Monetarily, the charges can run up into several thousands of dollars every year. Often, home nurse visits and doctor visits will be frequent and supplemental medication and support will be necessary for the survival of your loved one.  While these are expensive, we at Karns Law Group know that you may have other costs that are not counted in dollars.

Reckless tractor-trailer drivers place you and others at risk

You've probably lived through it a time or two (or three or four). You're driving along a Rhode Island highway, making good time to reach your destination, enjoying a sunny day and looking forward to gathering with loved ones or meeting friends for a night on the town. Suddenly, from what seems like out of nowhere, a massive tractor-trailer comes barreling up behind you so fast it appears as though it might crash right through your rear window. Or, perhaps you've been unfortunate enough to be alongside one of these enormous, heavy vehicles, as it serves dangerously close to your driver's side door while is passes in the left line.

The avoidable dangers of texting while driving

People all across Rhode Island are likely aware of the growing campaigns that aim to bring an end to the somewhat recent phenomenon of people texting while driving. Though some believe that checking their messages or sending off a quick text behind the wheel is no big deal, it can actually be deadly.
